Straight Welsh Rugby Player Wakes Up Gay: Chris Birch Is A Hairdresser
As he says:
“I was gay when I woke up and I still am. It sounds strange but when I came round I immediately felt different. I wasn’t interested in women any more. I had never been attracted to a man before – I’d never even had any gay friends. But I didn’t care about who I was before, I had to be true to my feelings.”
He’d just been another rugged man who enjoyed playing rugby.
Mr Birch, of Ystrad Mynach, South Wales, ads:
“Suddenly I hated every thing about my old life. I didn’t get on with my friends, I hated sport and found my job boring [he worked in a bank]. I started to take more pride in my appearance, bleached my hair and started working out. I went from a 19st skinhead, to a 11st preened man. People I used to know barely recognised me and with my new look I became even more confident.”
Might it be that inside every 19st rugby player is a homosexual hairdresser waiting to get out..?
